Run with us! We dare you.

What is Albany Run Walk?

ARW is a marathon and half marathon training program that uses interval running.  Our target race is the Combos Marathon (nee Snickers Marathon) on March 2,  2023.  You can train with us and go from being a beginner runner to marathoner!

What is interval training?

So you wanna run a marathon?  That means running long distances.  Every runner, no matter their ability, can begin to train for endurance by taking regular, frequent walk breaks between running intervals.  Depending on your endurance level, you will run a set amount of time followed by a 30-second walk break, then repeat this interval until you have covered the distance set on the training schedule.  Training this way allows you to prepare your body and mind to cover the distance of a marathon safely.  Training with ARW makes it FUN!
